Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 88

This time at Crafty Cardmakers, we're going with the date! It's April Fool's day, so we want humour! It can be obvious, subtle, or even an 'in joke', but as long as there's some humour involved, you're set for this challenge.

Our sponsors this time are:

See the challenge blog for details of prizes.

I've gone for a family-type joke. You see, my husband seems to answer most things these days with, 'Fair Enough,' but it always sounds (to my ear, at least) like, 'Fairy Nuff.' So, as a birthday card for him, I've made this:
The image is from Stitchy Bear, and she's always seemed to me to be a fairy who's not about to brook any nonsense from anyone. I added the sentiment in Photoshop Elements and printed on Crafter's Companion card. It's coloured with Promarkers. I cut the image with a Spellbinders die - the smallest of the Grand Ornate Ovals. That die puts tiny holes around the edge, and what are those for if not to stitch? So, I've added a round of backstitching. The paper is from a pad by Paper Pizazz. I haven't heard of them before, but a colleague is giving up her cardmaking and wanted to sell off some bits. I fell in love with a pad of paper, and this is from that pad. (Can't tell you anything else as it was coverless when I first saw it!) Now, my husband is a tidy soul - at least, he hates other people's clutter. (He doesn't seem to have a problem with his own, as it happens!) So, I've left the card plain.

I hope you can join us this time.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
